SamsungSamsung Semiconductor maintains strong performance in Q2 : Samsung Korea has published financial results for Q2 2017. The semiconductor business posted KRW 8.03 trillion in operating profits on consolidated revenue of KRW 17.58 trillion for the quarter. The Memory Business achieved solid earnings growth in the quarter thanks to continued strong demand for high-density server DRAM and SDD, despite weaker seasonal demand for mobile. Limited supply conditions also remained in the industry, which allowed for favorable supply-demand conditions and prices. For NAND, earnings were driven by expanded sales of value-added products, such as mobile products over 64GB, datacenter NVMe SSD and enterprise SSD. For DRAM, demand for differentiated products, such as high-density server products and HBM, contributed to earnings growth.

Samsung NAND
Looking at the second half outlook for NAND, Samsung expects strong industry demand from flagship smartphone launches and expansion of new datacenters, while restricted supply conditions will also remain.

The company will focus on ramping up production of 64-layer V-NAND at its new semiconductor plant, and will seek to improve profitability by expanding sales of differentiated products such as V-NAND-based server SSDs.

Samsung DRAM
As for the DRAM outlook, demand for high-density products over 64GB is expected to remain solid due to expansion of new server platforms and continued demand for datacenter servers. Mobile demand will also remain solid thanks to high-end smartphone launches.

The company plans to actively respond to increasing demand by expanding 1Xnm migration, while also enhancing profitability through sales of high value-added products, such as mobile DRAM over 4GB and server DRAM over 64GB.

System LSI Business
Turning to the System LSI Business, earnings improved QoQ due mainly to increased sales of processors for flagship smartphones and steady sales of 14nm processors for mid- to low-end smartphones. Sales of image sensors also contributed to earnings.

Looking ahead, continued growth is expected thanks to stable supply of 10nm mobile processors and increased supply of OLED DDIs for flagship smartphones. Growing market adoption of dual camera solutions will also boost image sensor shipments.

In the mid-to-long term, System LSI will seek to diversify its customer base and product portfolio with offerings for various applications, including Internet of Things (IoT), automotive and Virtual Reality (VR).

Samsung foundry business

Samsung Foundry Business
As for the Foundry Business, which became independent from System LSI in the second quarter, favorable results were achieved thanks to mass production of 10nm processors for flagship smartphones and increased sales of 14nm mobile processors.

Looking ahead, Samsung plans to actively respond to demand for 10nm mobile processors by expanding capacity and improving production efficiency. It will also look to maintain technology leadership by completing development of the 8nm process and preparing advanced infrastructures including EUV.
